Al-Anon is an organization associated with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) that is dedicated to helping the adult family members of alcoholics (either active or in remission) through education and emotional support. Like AA, the program depends on regular meetings where members can talk about the feelings and problems that are associated with living with an alcoholic. The organization can help spouses/siblings/parents of alcoholics understand that alcoholism is a wide-spread problem and no fault of their own so that they can interact realistically with the alcoholic family member. Also like AA, anonymity is one of the keystone concepts of the organization.
